We stayed one night at Bahia Rica on a week long motorcycle trip around Costa Rica. We got there late as we had advised earlier in the day, no problem, everything was ready for us. This place is like going to your best friend's cottage/camp, you don't have to bring anything and you are treated like family. Great place to... More

But what made this stay so speciel was the atmosphere that Thomas and Vigdis created. We felt at home! There is a warm personal and passionate feel. The... More

We spent 3 weeks in Costa Rica, and feel the 4 nights we spent with Thomas and Vigdis were the best. We did the 3 day kayak tour with Vigdis who skillfully guided us on a route that favored the tides. We camped at places that offered a history of the area, and the opportunity to meet local folks.

Having spent 10 weeks travelling CR with our kids, we look back at our wonderful stay at Bahia Rica as one of the best memories of them all.

I visited Bahía Rica together with two friends during 12 days in November 2013. Our hope was having a relaxing holiday combined with exciting fishing for tropical species. We had booked 8 days of fishing + 4 days of relaxing at the lodge and the nearby area. The lodge is nicely located by itself out in the jungle/forest by the... More

To stay here is a unike experience. Your lodging is in a treehouse, where the monkeys are sitting outside staring at you. You can take a bath with a view of the wildlife, and the rooms are superclean. Vigdis and Thomas are the best hosts you can imagine. They made delicious food every day and offered a lot of different... More

I loved it here! Beautiful! Monkey's ate right in the trees by our room. The bay view was gorgeous. The hosts were super nice and made wonderful meals. They provide awesome tours. It was my most favorite stay of my Costa Rica trip. Thank you Vidgis & Thomas!
